Great news everyone — we’ll be opening the Port of Ilwaco gallery Fridays and Saturdays in March from 11am to 4pm. Our good friend and fellow Peninsula artist Susan Spence will be on hand to meet you and greet you.
Susan will be showing a large inventory of her handmade Beach Baskets, as well as Marie Powell original art and pottery by David Campiche. Stroll the Port of Ilwaco waterfront and stop in the shop! COVID rules are in effect.
Two for the show
Printmaking on display in NZ
Here I am with two of my monotypes at the Yvonne Rust Gallery’s opening reception of the Te Kowhai Print Trust Members Exhibition at The Quarry Art Centre in Whangarei, New Zealand, earlier this month.
What an outstanding evening! It was festive, well-attended and a lovely show of fabulous examples of printmaking! Check out photos from the evening on the Print Trust’s Facebook page.
FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS IN MARCH
11AM - 4PM at the Port of Ilwaco
NZ Art Center
Making great progress on the construction of the spectacular Hundertwasser Art Center with Wairau Maori Art Gallery, located right here by the yacht basin in Whangarei. One photo is of the construction, while the other is a model of the finished project. This beautiful cultural center is reminiscent of the unique architectural designs of Friedrich Hundertwasser, and has been in the planning, funding, and building stages for many years. This will be a huge attraction for locals and international visitors too.
Behind the scenes ...
New from New Zealand
Some of my latest creations at the Te Kowhai Print Trust studio include monoprints on rice papers and other archival papers, for use in creating my mixed media work.

Crab season is here
It’s crab season on the PNW coast! Visit one of the many local seafood markets in Ilwaco and on the Long Beach Peninsula to get the good stuff!
